Portfolio Presentations

  • Lebanon High School junior Sydney Broughton, 16, right, waits in line with a selection of her ceramic pieces behind Eric Jeon, left, and Elisabeth Doolen, middle, both of Hartford High School, to see a representative of Lesley University during the first Upper Valley High School Portfolio Day at AVA Gallery in Lebanon, N.H. Tuesday, May 17, 2017. The Upper Valley Counselors Association organized the event for high school students considering attending a college to study visual art. Four colleges sent representatives to critique portfolios and inform students about their schools. Ellen Bagnato, college and career advisor at Sharon Academy, background center, said she took four students to National Portfolio Day in Boston last fall where they waited in long lines with thousands of students for the opportunity of a portfolio review. She hoped Tuesday's event would make a similar experience more accessible to local students. (Valley News - James M. Patterson) Copyright Valley News.
